Why America, and Why College Sports?
One of the main reasons athletes strive to earn a sport scholarship is because it gives them the opportunity to earn a first class education at a fraction of the total cost. Many of the world’s best Universities such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Duke, UCLA and Princeton are located in the USA.
These and many other good schools offer academic and sport scholarships and financial aid. America is without saying the best place in the world where one can effectively combine a top level sport with a degree. More over many schools provide personal tutors and additional classes for the athletes when needed.
Many elite and talented athletes don’t pursue a higher education because they fear losing contact with their sport. This is an unfortunate trade-off for many individuals who may have excellent academic potential and don’t realize it. A college sport scholarship can provide an ideal combination of sports and academics and it make perfect sense for those who feel they have a chance to pursue these opportunities.
The US College system has produced some of the best well-known names in sports. A student athlete can enjoy rewards in receiving a world class coaching, access to top notch sports facilities. Sport development and free equipment. A daily schedule involves one or two sport specific training sessions of practice a day plus weight room and fitness time. All this alongside a University degree.
